WORLD POETRY DAY
Turns out today is World Poetry Day. Honestly, I wouldn't have known this if it weren't for the trending Instagram tags letting me know. Nevertheless, I decided that today is an important day and I should post some poetry so that I can be a part of it. I haven't shared my poetry with hardly anyone before so I am actually scared of doing this but I am hoping that this blog will be an open space for all of us to share our creativity and our deepest emotions. So here is one!
Yes, it is a bit depressing but I also thought it was appropriate because spring is here and the flowers are blooming...that makes it happier right?..
Anyway, I wrote this when I was feeling lonely about a year ago. I had moved to a new place and I really wasn't making any friends. I was wondering if I rushed into adulthood. I was nineteen, working almost full time, and a full time student. I thought I was doing so well getting ahead, but maybe by rushing, I was actually isolating myself and not enjoying my life. Looking back, I am actually grateful for that time because I learned a lot about myself and I am thankful for the experiences that taught me early life lessons.
I hope that you will interpret this poem in your own way and I look forward to sharing more in the future. Please, please, please comment below with some of your own writing (it is World Poetry Day after all, so it is necessary), I would love that so much!
